This will be my first year taking part! I'll be raising money for my local Children's Miracle Network hospital, CHOC - Children's Hospital of Orange County. Here's my profile: www.extra-life.org/participant/danielpenland

I caught this late in the game but I think it is a great thing. I signed up for Team CAG. I am playing for East TN Children's Hospital. Will see if I can drum up some sponsers before the event, wish I would have caught this sooner, will be on the lookout early next year.

The KoeiTecmo and Natsume offices are two highway exits away from my office. Might stop by today for more prize pick ups.

I just donated today on your page, thanks for all the prizes. Would love to be lucky enough to win that Forza 4 Press Edition. Good luck with the marathon, especially if you'll be playing RockSmith for an extended period of time. :-P

Hope you have fun while gaming for 24-hours! For some of us, that's impossible to do with family to take care off.

Question:
If you win, do you choose what you get?

I want to make a donation, but I guess there is no way to make a general team donation, right?

I'd prefer not to donate it to myself. Any ideas?


Donate to me! :P

Honestly, the money is going to the same place no matter who you donate to, and after all that is whats important.

I won't be playing (again!) but I'll be happy to make another donation this year. Good luck, and have fun, to everyone involved!

Well I added my name to the front page, but now it is gone, don't know what happened with that, deleted by accident maybe?

Possible. It is a wiki!

Sadly, it breaks my heart that I can't give this year (lost my job), but I will have a spare 400 MSP code I can donate for a prize... Any way I can donate this to an existing team's prize pool?

I updated the XBLA / PSN list. You can add your name if you want. I added a few who were easy to find. If you want your name up there, please edit the wiki or ask some else to.

So, for all that are participating, what are you planning on playing for your 24 hours?

I'm thinking of doing a marathon of NHL 12. I'd have to be able to at least get through a season in that time...

If the team gets to $5,000, I'll be playing Rocksmith for as long as I can. If not, I have the review copy of Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One plus Dungeon Defenders. If the Arkham City or Uncharted 3 review copies arrive early, then well......

Seems I will be spreading my playtime out over the next few days as I have to work on Saturday now. I see a steady rotation of Gears 3 and replaying through Uncharted 1 and 2 to get ready for 3. Although I do plan on sneaking in some OoT at work when I can.

I'd like to do a Sonic the Hedgehog marathon from original up to Adventure, or possibly a Rockstar marathon so I can finally beat GTA IV/Red Dead haha

Gonna try my hand at another raffle, nothing big, but hopefully it will garner a few more donations. http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=304869

Well, shit. That was a nice overnight boost by Team CAG. Thanks everyone! Now I'm pretty sure I will break my fingers on Rocksmith as we're on the edge of $5,000.

I have tried adding my name to the team list several times now, but it either never shows up or gets deleted on the next edit. So I give up, if anyone else wants to add me on, please do so. Kind of annoying:???:

Ugh! I'm a little over half way to my goal! My friends were pretty stingy, but I have one last friend whose parents think this is a great idea. I'm hoping they donate today before the cut off!

...actually, does anyone know if today or tomorrow is the cut off?

Last year you were still able to receive donations well after the actual event. I believe it was mid/late November when it was cut off.
